Attempt to give this photo a different "Feel".

EDIT: I meant that I was trying to give this photo a different feel from the original (top).

Here's a bigger version of the photo (before and after).
Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

If you were to crop out the people entirely, there may be a small chance that the bathroom tiles could be a halfway decent photo.

Without actually having anything to contribute when it comes to the "style", I can say that it is too dark and gray.

I would work more on that (see quick example).

LOL, very funny comments on this one...

But seriously, you mean different in what way? I believe almost any photo is retouchable, I tried various things on this one and I like some of the results. It all depends on the direction you want the pic to look...

I like the color shift(s) you added on the second photo. Maybe tone down the color just a little. I don't think the local contrast helps here, makes it seem too harsh for the mood of the photo. Or you could just apply some local contrast selectively and more sparingly. Just my opinion.

A bit of tone mapping, selective sharpening and just a bit of healing.... Showing the rest of the picture might give it a different "feel"
